    rps20150525_121216.jpg Close encounter with sea waves locals came shouting, asking me to remove the car earliest. rps20150525_122512.jpg rps20150525_122614.jpg rps20150525_122416.jpg rps20150525_122217.jpg rps20150525_122846.jpg rps20150525_123127.jpg rps20150525_122147.jpg rps20150525_121645.jpg rps20150525_121059.jpg rps20150525_121932.jpg rps20150525_121745.jpg rps20150525_122147.jpg 20150524_112402.jpg rps20150525_120949.jpg rps20150525_120852.jpg

    Drove the car, on beach with boot lid open & spare wheel gate closed, for few kms, and enjoyed the sea breeze at its fullest.

    BTW, It was too hot as expected in summer,worst part was that some oil vessel had leaked in to Arabic sea few months back, so there is a tinge of oil over the sea water, also, sand on the beach has become oily, the oily sand sticks to the foot wears and clothes. So as of now, till the oil tinge gets cleared, better not to visit the place.
    I managed to prevent the soiling of seat due to the oil & wet clothes by covering them with foot mats received from dealer. rps20150525_122908.jpg

    On the top of the above mentioned problem, it seems, day by day, the place is getting commercialised. Swayamhoo Patil eatery which is famous on Internet for konkani recipes have started using commercially available food products such as Chutney, Solkadhi.

    How far it is from Pune and how is the roads and all,


    Sir, you are lucky that you got extended warranty, I checked with fiat dealers in Pune in month of May and no dealer in Pune is giving extended warranty. They said there is some issues going on and may be in future they will offer the extended warranty option.

    @Taurus7, IMHO, Extended warranty of 5 years is applicable only for Avventura, and your is Linea.
    Anyways, when is delivery expected?


    Diveagar is approximately 150 km from Pune,via Tamihini Ghat, other route is via Warandha Ghat. Roads are combination of good & bad, and tortious, I mean perfect for Fiats.!

    Now a days, rules and environment in Pune RTO are strict(Courtesy :union surface transport minister) & dealer's agent has to follow the procedure in que.Doing anything by going 'out of way 'has the risk of agent getting debarred from RTO. Hence , it might take some more time than expected

    Ah, judging from these pics, you sir get to engage clutch and gear on some terrifically scenic road avventura-s, regularly at that! Fantastic, and enviable, and this dark tan shade on the Avventura's both sombre/sober AND charismatic, hunh?!

    cheers

    Well, few more

    During this trip, it was very hot due to summer. Outside temperature was touching ranging between 37 to 42.
    But the ACC effect was so nice that sometimes my family members asked me to raise the temperature of the AC. And my car doesn't have sunfilms not even, front one.

    Anyways, there is no update from FCA or FASS about availability of the keys of the cross bars and warranty claim about the seat height adjustment.

    A sincere request. Unless you get the complete underbody anti rust coating done for the Avvy, please don't let it come in contact with sea water. You never know what parts may start rusting.

    Fiat is coming up with its own EW program which will be informed to the customers either during delivery or later on. Owner who haven't got the chance to buy EW will be able to do so within the stipulated time frame and this will come at a cost. This information is some known source.

    Recd a call from fiats today.

    Executive : Sir, your cross bar keys would be made at sky moto workshop. You need to take the car at workshop.

    Me : what!!! But I was told by fiats themselves that order for new keys has been placed at FCA, and soon the key would be dispatched.And why the heck you take time of weeks together for such mediocre issue?

    Executive : Sir, I am taking 'kapur' from SKY MOTO online, you can talk with him.

    Me : kapoor is a moron. How can fiat appoint him in the showroom. He deserve a job of polishing shoes of the customers. And better you train him under a puncture repairing guy so that he can come to know something about cars.
    He was handling my friend @Taurus7 's car, just go & see how he has screwed up his brand new Linea.
    Go & read the TFI, On TFI most of the members are fiat lovers but see on the Taurus7,'s thread, even these fiat lovers have started bashing fiats for the fiasco.
    And, tell me, few days back, Jay Vijay FASS has placed a warranty claim about my height adjustable seat, what action FCA is taken on that?

    Executive :Sorry sir, I didn't had idea, I was just supposed to inform on the keys.

    Me :You custemer care people & the dealership are tarnishing Fiat's image.
    Then, phone got disconnected due to poor network.



    After few minutes, I got a call from Fiat Caffè /sky moto.

    Lady : Good afternoon sir,
    Me : There is nothing good about this afternoon. Anyways it might be good for you & and you people keep making custemer's afternoon bad. Now, please proceed.

    Lady : Sir, we are going to make keys for the cross bars, and you will have to drop the car at sky moto workshop for that.

    Me :If at all, keys were to be made in sky moto, why the heck Nikhil (PDI man of sky moto) told me that he had placed order for keywith FCA? And why did it took 6 months for you to take decision to make the keys? Were you people busy in setting up key manufacturing factory?
    You people keep spoiling the pleasure of owning new car, you should be knowing that you people get salary from the dealership which is derived from profit earned from the customers.

    Lady : Sir, I am new in sky moto. If it is not possible to drop the car we can pick up the car tomorrow.
    Me : And when will you return it?

    Lady :Sir if brought at 9 am, we will return it by 6 pm.

    Me :I want written assurance, because you SKY moto people don't keep promises made verbally.
    One of my friend Taurus7 has purchased a brand new Linea Emotion, which had a problem of of pulling on one side on the date of delivery. Sky moto asked him to bring the car next day pretending that it's just a alignment issue which can be solved in 30 mins. It is almost 15 days, the car is lying at workshop.

    Lady : Sir, I have newly joined here, and unaware of the past things.
    Me :Obviously, new people keep joining sky moto every now and then because good people do not continue there and and sky moto has policy of retaining only morons..

    Lady : Sir, I am just conveying the message sent by my seniors.
    Me : Me to want you to do the same in reverse direction.
    As of now, I want time to think about sending the car to them.
